African Violet Propagation
Hi, I have tried to propagate a miniature African Violet by leaf cutting but sadly leaf rot kicks in just after the plantlets appear. How can I do a good job without having another mishap?

Have you tried dusting the leaf cutting with rooting hormone? Most rooting hormones also contain fungicide, which helps keep rot away. You should also try a faster draining soil or watering less. Rot is frequently caused by too much water and cutting back on moisture will help keep it away.
